I have always wanted to swim with dolphins in their environment, and this excursion exceeded my expectations. Not only did I get to see a huge pod of some of the most beautiful sea creatures I've ever seen, we also were lucky enough to see sea turtles and a couple whales in the distance!

Magical nature tour. The staff was knowledgeable and respectful of the marine life. We were gifted with the majesty of the spinner dolphins right away. The whales were all around. The turtles were in the sweet five with fish cleaning their shells.

We were lucky enough to have an all female crew and they were too good! We saw humpback whales, spinner dolphins, and turtles. Would recommend for all abilities - even snorkel virgins! Such a great crew and such a great day - the food in the Spinner Cafe afterwards was great too. Don't leave Hawaii without going on this trip!
